  • Renewables are developing slower than expected.
  • Iran is the world's 7th largest CO2 emitter and has not ratified the Paris agreement.
  • The power sector is controlled by state-owned companies Tavanir, TPPH, and WRM.
  • Iran has the world's second largest gas reserves, about 40% of which comes from the South Pars field.
  • Gas production is increasing rapidly (5%/year since 2010).
  • Natural gas dominates the power mix (87%).
  • Diesel and gasoline prices are among the lowest in the world despite several adjustments.
  • Electricity prices have doubled since 2019 to reduce consumption.
  • Natural gas represents around 70% of the energy consumed.
  • Electricity consumption has been increasing by 4%/year since 2010.
  • Investments in new infrastructures have been significantly affected since 2006 by international economic sanctions.
  • The country aims to boost its gas production by 50% by 2029.
  • Around 12 GW of gas capacity is under construction.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Petroleum is responsible for the entire hydrocarbon sector: oil, gas, refining, and petrochemicals. The Ministry of Energy is in charge of the electricity sector and oversees the energy efficiency and renewables policy.

  • Energy Companies


    Tavanir (Iran Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution Management Company) is the vertically integrated national electricity company and controls 16 regional electricity companies.

  • Energy Supply


    Oil production has increased rapidly since 2020, reaching 157 Mt (+18% in 2021 and +6% in 2022), after a significant decrease over 2017- 2020 (-17%/year) because of renewed international sanctions and COVID in 2020. Previously, it had dropped by 4.6%/year between 2010 and 2015 to 161 Mt, because of international sanctions.

  • Energy Prices


    In 2015, gasoline and diesel prices increased significantly as the government started to lift fuel subsidies. Consequently, diesel prices more than quadrupled that year. In 2020, the government raised gasoline and diesel prices again in a context of large budget deficit concerns, reaching US$0.33/l (+38%) and US$0.12/l (+71%), respectively.

  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita energy consumption stands at 3.2 toe (similar to that in the Middle East or the EU average), including about 3 400 kWh in 2022.

    Energy consumption has stabilised since 2018 and stood at 276 Mtoe in 2022. It grew by +3.7%/year between 2010 and 2018.

  • Issues & Prospects

    Iran aims to develop its hydrocarbon resources, particularly its gas exports.
